Parc Balneaire du Prado, Marseille

3.1
#2 of 6 in Beaches in Marseille
Facing The Prado Seaside Park, Parc Balneaire du Prado, is a gorgeous shoreline constructed by Defferre. It was construsted keeping in mind the disturbance the overflowing waves caused to vehicles on the adjacent roads. The changes made have created a pleasant environment where it is not uncommon to see families walking enthusiasts and kites to indulge their passion. The beach is clean and is monitored everyday. It hosts a number of special carnivals and events every year.

  • But how dare call this place burnt grass, a repulsive filth, or you'll be lucky not to emmer... by a bunch of c... Seaside Park. But what people who find that it's the top are blind?

  • I love the Seaside Park of the prado. It is relativment easy to Park except in high summer. Large lawn available to you. The view is amazing. For bathing is very nice. careful though if you have children at an early age: the beach drops abruptly and very quickly the child no longer foot (other than on the beach of the Prophet which is better adapted to the small). It's relatively clean except in the Woody part or the Woods resemble a public toilet, very probably because ' there is no enough free toilets available on the beach.

  • System of beaches located on the South of the city, easily accessible from the Centre by public transport. The beach, well equipped, is composed of gravel that you stick everywhere and makes the water a nice beige colour. Much better on the rocks, but not really. Finally, we were invited to leave by the police who were chasing some bad guys (actually then taken after run-up along the beach). ERGO ... better go in Cassis. Much better.

  • Quite a large beach with gorgeous views. It's not sandy but has very small pebbles.
  • Decent, large beach with convenient access by bus. Not a sand beach, it's covered with small pebbles. There is a large grassy area behind the beach which is great for picnics or games. Some bathrooms and changing stalls, but not as many as other beaches. There's a large concrete wall with steps separating this beach from the next, which is also a good place to sit and enjoy the views. Usually some food trucks nearby.
  • Good for swimming, relaxing and beach volleyball. There is a big Casino supermarket, bus stations and city bike station, all close to the beach. The night bus to Vieux Port usually works until midnight. Sometimes the lights of the beach are off at night time!!
  • We're there in the evening. Nice beach. Clam. Just 10-15 mins journey from Marseille City Center.
  • Great place to watch sail boats and windsurfers!
